Jennifer Aniston Mocks U.S. Carriers in `Nightmare' Emirates Ad

  • Friends star endures inflight peanuts; wakes to Gulf luxury
  • Dubai-based company spent $20 million on TV spots for campaign

Jennifer Aniston takes a dig at U.S. airlines in an ad for Gulf carrier Emirates that shows her being offered a bag of peanuts and a hand towel by American-accented flight attendants after asking for the plane’s bar and shower.

The sequence is revealed to have been a dream as the former ‘Friends’ star awakes to find herself cosseted under a duvet in the walnut-surround flat-bed seat of an Emirates superjumbo’s first-class cabin, tablet computer to hand.
